    I am tempted to add a new separate physical address for a different city with the same Business using the same Gaccount but also concerned it will screw up the existing listing as it is #1.

    Should I treat them under seperate G accounts or would the reputation of the the existing G Places account actually help out the new location?

    Would appreciate advice from those that have actually listed seperate locations for the same business within the same account.

    Is it okay to use the same domain but use a different page (Ex. Mysitedotcom/My-New-City.htm

    Would appreciate your input BHW. Thanks.

    Nobody? Someone throw me a bone please. My gut is telling me to keep the accounts seperate so Iit doesnt look spammy... the second address is a home he will be using but that shouldnt matter, he is a repairman and i imagine many repairmen many work out of their homes.

    Is it a real location? I don't see a problem with adding another location to your business list, especially if it's just a matter of claiming it.

    One of my clients has 6 offices in a few close cities (all on one account), and they're #1 for all of their locations.

    If you're not using a real address, it might not hurt to add another Google Account. It's takes all of 45 seconds, and you can definitely reduce the risk if there was some.

    There are chains, like hotels, self storage places, that have a main domain and each location has a subdomain page. If it is a physical brick and mortar business, you should not have a problem because it is listed in some directory some place, like a phone book.
